Welcome to the official web page of the English Cemetery in Malaga, the oldest non-Roman Catholic Christian cemetery on mainland Spain. Established in 1831 on a piece of land granted by the Governor of Malaga to the then British Consul, the land was subsequently ceded by Royal Decree to the British Government. Since 1891 The Cemetery grounds have also been home to St George’s Anglican Church which comes under the Anglican Diocese of Europe.
The Cemetery, situated in the heart of the city of Malaga is the last resting place of many notable figures from the English, Spanish and Foreign Communities settled in or visiting Andalucia and particularly the Costa del Sol. The burials that have taken place over the years provide a unique historical record of the British and other Protestant Christian communities who have resided on the Costa del Sol since 1831.
